Could someone who is closer to the Tiger work please respond in detail
to this request from Mapperz for an update on the Tiger import?

Is it complete? What are the maintenance plans? What outreach plans are
there, etc?

He runs a well-read blog (as far as I can tell) at:
http://mapperz.blogspot.com/ and the publicity would be good for the
project. [Entry on London's LEZ today]

I am happy to feed him info on the India data import and workshops (and
link to Mikel) later this month and see if we can't get some more
coverage there too.

Hi Steve, I am noticing huge amounts of Tiger data in OSM - USA
Have i missed a blog post, not much on it i can find.
How complete is the conversion? looks like most of it to me (looking in
random places)
congratulations hopefully this will enlarge the user base 

think a blog post on the Mapperz site is deserved. 'Tiger, Tiger
Everywhere - Open Street Map'

Suggestion: on the OSM site can you have a map with the coverage area -
it's getting harder to work out which areas in the world are covered and
which are not (it's good thing really).

I wasn't expecting this until August 2008 (from the stats on conversion
way back)

The whole OSM is really starting to make real impact!
